Simulation of Shielding Materials against Galactic Cosmic Rays
Radiation is one of the most critical hazards for deep space missions. Among the sources of deep space radiation, the Galactic Cosmic Rays, which are composed of high energy ions travelling at relativistic speeds from ...
Effectiveness of Polymer Composites as Radiation Shield against Galactic Cosmic Rays
Currently spacecraft uses aluminum alloys for primary structures which do not provide sufficient radiation protection for both the spacecraft electronics and for the astronauts in cislunar space. This thesis evaluates the ...
